Dorsal spines (total): 12 - 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 18-20; Anal spines : 2; Anal soft rays : 20 - 21. Body with 6-7 irregular bands (Ref. 4404 ). Dark spot present distally on anterior part of dorsal fin; females with dark spots on vertical fins, males more evenly colored (Ref. 4404 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabit shallow shore line water of intertidal reef flats from 0.5 to 1.5 m depth where the substrate consists of a thin carpet of algal turf and sand (Ref. 205 ). Benthic (Ref. 58302 ). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205 ), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114 ). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 23.6 - 29.3, mean 27.5 (based on 1314 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00337 - 0.01633), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.8   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
